How to help the O.A.S.I.S Food Pantry win $250,000

The O.A.S.I.S Food Pantry in St. Charles has 17 days to earn enough on-line votes to win a $250,000 grant from Pepsi.  It's asking for you to vote... and vote daily.

Thursday evening, O.A.S.I.S is ranked #39th in on-line votes.  A proposed on-line businesses program for aspiring entertainers is currently #1.

To vote for O.A.S.I.S, go to this website:

  •  Click on the Browse Ideas and Vote link on the right
  • On the next page, click on the drop-down menu near the top and select NEAR YOU
  • Then click on the $250,000 option to narrow the search results and find the O.A.S.I.S nomination

You'll have to register to vote and you can vote once a day for your charity.

Every month, the O.A.S.I.S food pantry provides groceries and toiletries for 550 families.  The families are usually referred to the food pantry by area churches and other assistance agencies.

O.A.S.I.S says that it would use the Pepsi grant money to purchase the property it currently leases.  Kim Mayfield, an O.A.S.I.S board member, says the move would free up funds to provide more assistance for families.
